The Iron Orchard – New Opening Date Friday, March 29th
From the acclaimed novel by Tom Pendleton, “The Iron Orchard” is the story of Jim McNeely (Lane Garrison), a young man thrust into the vibrant and brutal West Texas oilfields in 1939. In a state gushing with oil and filled with ambition, McNeely settles into a small-town community that is slowly overcoming the trauma of the Great Depression. The formidable path before him is riddled with obstacles — overbearing bosses who try to keep him down, powerful oilmen who are reluctant to invest in a fresh face, and women who see salvation in his charms. What will define his legacy in building the rich oil tradition of West Texas?
